Info about the original

When compiling the standard design programme of the Deutsche Bundesbahn, a mainline diesel locomotive with an output of 1500-1600 HP had already been considered. The engine and drive system of the resulting V160 is closely based on the V100 locomotives. The locomotives of Class 216 were used in nearly all railway divisions of the Deutsche Bundesbahn. They were used for both passenger and freight transport, where they provided good service. The 216 118-0 was based at the Oldenburg depot of the Münster railway division at the beginning of the 1970s and was used there mostly for passenger trains.
